      I think straightforward play would've been better here, but it's unlikely your opponents had anything to call you with anyway. It's a pity to waste a good hand, but there's little one can do about it.

      I´d also prefer bet flop in 4-way pot.
      If anyone has Kx or draw they woud call.
      If you checked flop then check turn is a little better since seems that no-one doesn´t have anything on the flop, so they would fold to your turn bet.
      This way co or bu might take stab on the pot on the turn and you win against them some money.
